Maps of Wraxall and Failand
Scale: 1 : 31680
Description: This hill sketch features an engraved outline reading 'Ordnance map of the environs of Bristol'. Military barracks and batteries protecting the Bristol Cannel are recorded at the mouth of the River Severn, at the top of the map. Grave mounds ('Tumuli'), hillforts, ancient camps and antiquities are noted in gothic script at Bitton and to the right of Dundry Hill. Otherwise, quarries, mills and pits dominate this industrial region of the county of Avon. Corrections in red ink and other additions were made at a later date.
Contibutor: Dawson, Robert
